White House releases trailer previewing immigration address

But will the speech itself be a blockbuster or bust with viewers?

The White House released a preview of the president's immigration address on social media

The White House released a "trailer" on social media on Wednesday, one day before President Barack Obama’s immigration speech, marking another social media milestone for the executive branch.

POTUS is staying busy through the address tomorrow night. CBS News White House correspondent Major Garrett tweeted that Obama will host a bipartisan dinner where he’ll talk immigration with members of Congress. (No word on whether Kentucky bourbon will be served).

Below is the full clip of Obama’s immigration speech preview, in which a casual – OK, suit-jacket-less – president says "everyone agrees our immigration system is broken." He adds that on Thursday night, he’ll discuss how to use his reach "to make the system work better, even as I continue to work with Congress and encourage them to get a bipartisan, comprehensive bill that can solve the entire problem."

The clip has already been viewed more than 400,000 times on Facebook.
